giving us a heads-up is already helpful (we don’t have an automatic or
semi-automatic way to upgrade to new versions).

Extra bonus points for trying to compile everything locally (with plain
"cabal install") and note what libraries will have to be upgraded. If
you can give us a list of hackage packages and versions that worked for
you on Debian unstable, then we’ll be quicker.
